Hazel is survived by two sons, Wayne (Vicki), Greenwood, Ind.; and Dale (Karen), Salem; one daughter, Marla (Richard) Snyder, Morro Bay, Calif.; 10 grandchildren: Jeffrey (Melissa), Debra (Bryan) Fox, Steven (Pam), Julie (Eric) Foust, Daniel, Tahnil (Terry) Davis, Tim Snyder, Sara (Chris) Godding, Heidi (Jeff)Anderson and David (Jamie); 18 great-grand-children; as well as many nieces and nephews.
She was preceded in death by her parents, husband, son, Arlan; two sisters: Ethel and Alice; and daughter-inlaw, Brenda Klingberg.
